The Washington D.C. Office of the EEOC brought this action in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, against Triad Tax Services, Inc. a.k.a. Triad Business Services, Inc. The complaint, filed in December 2002, alleged sex discrimination in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964; specifically that Defendant sexually harassed the charging party and retaliated against her for complaining about the harassment.



In October 2004 the court entered a default judgment against Defendant in the amount of $105,178.39, to be distributed between the charging party and another similarly situated employee. The default judgment also included injunctive provisions that would take effect if the Defendant resumes operations. In such case, the defendant would be enjoined from sexual discrimination, required to adopt an anti-discrimination policy, required to hire a human resources director to oversee complaint resolution, and required to train its managers regarding sexual harassment and complaint investigation.
